    Windows 9: Start menu changes color to match the theme

    In the latest leaks, we can see that the new Start menu will match the backgrounds of the wallpaper that you are using. As you can see in the image at the top of this post, the Start menu changes color according to the background that you choose.

    All I can say is some people are going to love this, me if I have to pay money to look at this I won't be. It and this new flat mono colored single colored tile looks like Windows 2. This kind of desktop goes against all the advances of easy recognition of names etc with the capitalization of words. The Science of Word Recognition
    WFW3.11 looked prettier.

    I tried the the "auto-colour" option in W8.
    I didn't like the way it worked, so I turned it off.

    Thanks for posting the article, Shawn. Thanks for the link to that article, Indianatone. :)

    I like the Modern look they may add to it, but no matter what they do to it I won't use it. Old tech to me now. Start Screen is much more efficient for me to use.
